March 2015


Results!  We’ve got results!  TRGC held its first tournament for 2015 at Empire Ranch earlier in February.  The weather forecast was for a little morning fog followed by plenty of sun and temperatures in the mid 60’s.  Those who believed that forecast suffered greatly; the sun never appeared and the temperature seemed to stay around 50 degrees.  The course was in great shape, however, and many of our players shot some really good scores.



1st Flight

1  Dustin Buck                                              69 net (card off)

2  Mike Morrow                                             69

3  Lucian Hategan                                       70

4  Steve Ryan                                               71


Jeff Robertson won the fewest putts with 30 in another card off.

Our next tournament is Saturday, March 7, at Turkey Creek.  Renee Wildenberg already has a full slate of entries, but if you want to play and haven’t yet signed up, you can be put on a waiting list if you give her a call or email. 

Dry Creek is coming up on Saturday, March 28


The Monterey trip will be here soon on April 9th and 10.  There have been some cancellations, so call Nick if you want to play—there’s plenty of room!


Nick and the Board are still working on the courses for the Reno tournament and any mid-week events to be added to the schedule later.

Our club membership level is 104 after renewals and the addition of new members.  As always, TRGC is looking to increase its membership base, so be sure to invite your friends, co-workers, and golf buddies from other groups to meet our club.  Don’t forget, you can take $5 off your renewal fee for next year for each new member you bring to the club (limit of five new members per person per year).



The length of rounds in our tournaments is always a consideration, especially with the growth of our membership and the increased number of participants in the tournaments.  It only takes one or two slow foursomes to affect the pace for all the players.  We all know the basics of keeping the pace of play up:  play ready golf, limit the number of practice swings to one or two, line up your putt while another player is putting. 


Another pace of play technique that really helps to speed up play involves the best use of the golf cart.  When the cart reaches the first ball in the fairway, drop off the first player and whatever clubs that player will need, then the second player can drive to his or her ball (unless it’s straight ahead) and get ready to play when the first player has hit.  The first player can make the short walk to the cart while the second player is getting ready to hit.  The proper use of the carts can make a huge difference in the group’s pace of play without anyone feeling rushed.


At least one person in each foursome should assume the role of moving the group along and keeping up with the foursome ahead.



Let’s keep a good thought for continued good health for our members in 2015.  Nick Schiaretti and Zach Peart were at the Empire Ranch tournament (Zach finished in the money!), both looking well and active.
